Talk on seminar. Hampstead, London (UK), 12 May 1985.
[extract from about 1hr 1min on the video]
[Inaudible]… But one thing, we must make it sure that those children who study there, they must pay for it, because, you see, what happens that it should just that the money be paid there, it’s finished there. That money can be recovered and can be used for some other purpose. Otherwise, sometimes in Sahaja Yoga it happens that people just send their children and do not pay for it; […]

Becoming the Light Within Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

Public Program. Hampstead, London (England), 10 May 1985.

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

As I’ve told you before that these are special times and times when we are very confused. We are confused because so many things are in the atmosphere. Moreover there is a special urge to search the truth. This is a very special thing of the modern times that people want to search the truth. They think perhaps that there is something beyond that they have to seek. […]

We have to be very honest people Hampstead Town Hall Centre, Hampstead (England)

Public program, Hampstead Town Hall, London, 22-11-1984

I bow to all the seekers of truth. These are the days of great confusion. Especially in the fields of seeking, there is so much confusion that it is hard for people to know what to seek, where to seek and what to expect. Apart from that, we have a special category of people who are seekers and who are so many in number. And there are so many in the market who are selling [inaudible] So, […]

The Experience of Truth (Part II) Hampstead Town Hall Centre, Hampstead (England)

Public Program, “The Experience of Truth”. Hampstead Town Hall, London (UK), 2 July 1984.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. The other day I talked to you about the experience of truth. That the truth has to be felt through your central nervous system.

[…]

Easter Puja: Forgiveness Temple of All Faiths, Hampstead (England)

Easter puja. Temple of all Faiths, London (UK), 22 April 1984.

Today we are celebrating the resurrection of Christ [and] with it we also have to celebrate the resurrection of human beings, of Sahaja Yogis who have been resurrected as realised souls.

What is the Purpose of Our Life? Hampstead Town Hall Centre, Hampstead (England)

Public Program. Hampstead Town Hall, London (UK), 1 November 1983.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. As doctor Reeves has told you, you have to become something. What do we have to become? We are born as human beings, and we take it for granted that we are human beings. [Shri Mataji smiles] We have to ask a question to ourselves : why are we human beings? What is the purpose of our life.Is it that the whole evolution is purposeless, […]

Going Against God’s Will Hampstead Town Hall Centre, Hampstead (England)

“Going against God’s will”, Public Programme, Hampstead, London (England), 31 May 1983.

From the very outset, I would like to apologise for being so late today, but I realised that when something is very important, from God’s point of view, all the negative forces work out their plans, how to delay, how to put obstructions, how to bring hindrances, how to deviate. It’s very surprising. And, today I think would be best if I tell you about God’s will and how we human beings try to go against it all the time. […]

“How to talk to New People”, Friends Meeting House, 120 Heath St, Hampstead, London NW3 1DR (UK), 12 May 1983.
So I bow to all the Sahaja Yogis, and all the seekers of truth, may God bless you all.

1st Day of Navaratri: Innocence and Virginity Temple of All Faiths, Hampstead (England)

Navaratri Puja, “Innocence and Virginity”. Temple of All Faiths, Hampstead, London (England), 17 October 1982.

It’s a great thing today that we are celebrating the Virgin’s worship in England. As you know, according to Sahaja Yoga, England is the heart where resides the Spirit of Shiva. And that Virgin should be respected and revered and worshipped in England is a great honour, I think, for all the Sahaja Yogis.Now one has to think why such an importance is paid to a Virgin. […]

It is Eternal Life Hampstead (England)

It is Eternal Life, Public Programme, Hampstead Town Hall, Hampstead, London (UK)

It is such a pleasure, again, to come to Hampstead and to the town hall of Hampstead. Hampstead has a special place in the play of the Divine. Perhaps the people living in Hampstead do no know the significance of this place. But we know there have been great poets who have been created out of the beautiful atmosphere of this area and one of them was William Blake who has said a lot about the future ascent of man. […]

When Are We to Grow? Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

“When Are We to Grow,” Public Programme, Hampstead (United Kingdom)
Nice to be back again in Hampstead. I always enjoyed Hampstead, because, as I have told, you in London, many people who were great, spiritual lived in this area; they preferred it to other places. So I believe that many people who live in this area must be also spiritual, must have taken their birth with the idea of achieving their Self-realisation.
It’s a very important time, […]

All is so Beautifully Made Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

Public program “All is so beautifully made”. Hampstead, London (England), 22 April 1982.

Better? Good. You came before, did you, no?

So to continue with the same topic we had, about the infrastructure of a human being, about which I told you, that God has made this infrastructure very beautifully.

Even in nature if you see anything that is living, see a tree if you look at the tree, you’ll be amazed, how the different channels that takes the sap upwards are so beautifully placed that there’s no problem for water to rise. […]

It is such a pleasure today – and great fortune that here, where William Blake lived, and He sang those songs of the greatness of this country, the future that it has to be, the dreams He saw, have now come to shape, that we are here to celebrate His anniversary.

I told you about the three powers we have within ourselves: one is the power of desire that is on the left-hand side; and the another power of action which is on the right-hand side; and the central power which is the power of our [divinity OR evolution]. Also I told you about the centers that we have. The lowest center is below the Kundalini which is responsible for our innocence. […]

There must be something beyond Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

Public Program. Hampstead Meeting House, London (UK), 18 June 1981.

So many people are seeking the Truth. This is only possible because we have reached the stage of our evolution that we do feel that there must be something beyond. We have tried everything before. Like today, I received a letter from a boy from Australia. He must have been to all the gurus of the world. What a seeker, I felt. What a seeker he was! […]

Improving The Spirit Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

Public Program, Hampstead Meeting House, London (UK), 4 June 1981.

We, on Earth, understand God with our earthly understanding. We understand Him through our mind, through our imagination, through our books, and other things where He’s described as such and such. There is a big mystery : God and His divine power. It’s a big mystery, mystery for all the human beings and you cannot conceive it, with your limited mind.The working of God’s divine power is also very mysterious. […]

Awareness Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

Seekers who have achieved something, those who have achieved a [lot or a develop] and there are some who are still seeking. So, when I talk to people who are still seeking it should be [?] to people who have really found out [?], because they have to talk to such people and we should have them to talk to people who are not [?]. Firstly one has to know that there are many people of [?]. […]

The Myth of Ego Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

Public Program, “The Myth of Ego”. Hampstead, London (UK), 20 November 1980.

I am told that already somebody has spoken about Me, perhaps Me or Sahaja Yoga as well and I’m sure you must have understood why we are here. Sahaja Yoga is an eternal process which is not. Today, it has started. It has been on, and on and on.Like, I started from My house, then I had to avoid some traffic, terrible traffic on Park Lane. […]

The Mahalakshmi Power, Diwali Puja Temple of All Faiths, Hampstead (England)

“The Mahalakshmi Power,” Diwali Puja. Hampstead (London), 9 November 1980
…English, in the sense that we sat down together and translated Sanskrit puja into English and tried to make it more understandable by you people.
It’s the day of Mahalakshmi puja they say, not only of Lakshmi Puja. There’s a difference between the two.
Mahalakshmi is one of the powers of the three powers, main powers, of Adi Shakti. As you know: Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati, Mahakali. Now these powers have powers at a material level also, […]

Navaratri Puja. Hampstead, London (UK), 19 October 1980.
So you have already heard about the importance of today in the life of the Goddess. And that today is Ravana was killed and that’s how there were celebrations. It still reflects itself [unsure]
As you know very well that all the satanic forces which one had to face one at the time are all back on the stage and they are to be defeated. The greatest problem of modern times is that these satanic forces have taken a very subtle form and they enter into your psyches and into your egos. […]

Guru Puja: The Statutes of the Lord Temple of All Faiths, Hampstead (England)

“The statutes of the Lord”, Guru purnima, London (UK), 27 July 1980
Today you have arranged this worship of your guru, that is your Mother. Perhaps you are very unique people that have a guru who is a Mother. Why this puja is arranged? One has to know that it is very important for every disciple to worship the guru, but the guru has to be a real guru, not a one who is just exploiting the disciples and who is not authorised by God. […]

Why Are We Here? Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

Public Program, Hampstead, London (UK), 6 June 1980.

Very beautiful personality. You’ve got awareness which is much higher than that of anything that is living created. For example, an animal doesn’t understand any beauty anywhere. An animal doesn’t understand if there is anything filthy or dirty or something smelling awfully. Animal doesn’t understand cleanliness, but human beings are so well created by God. They are so evolved that they can feel all these things, much, much more than animals or any other thing that is ever created before. […]
